Finally back in Nigeria

Well, the time has come again for me to commit myself to the grind again back here in the Dark Continent, and I gotta say that this last rotation was one for the books. No, not because there was absolute insanity on a rocket happening on a daily basis, nor did I steal a cop car while wearing a clown wig and nothing else, but for the fact that it was good times spent with good friends in a place that I had a sneaking suspicion could turn out to be a new home for me… which was proven time and time again.
-Of course, by said friends that in essence told me that if I could find any reason to complain about how life at point now is they would respectfully apply liberal doses of whoop-ass to my frail and ungrateful frame. Friends. Gotta love them… or they will kick your ass.
I do have to say though, all is well. KC came to the house as nervous as a crack-addled chihuahua swimming in a cup of coffee, and don’t tell her this but I thought that her expression coming off the plane was ABSOLUTELY hilarious. Hey, simple pleasures for simple minds, right? I guess that there were some reservations seeing as how her and I had only really talked over the intertubes or via telephone, but come on, it’s not like the photoshopped picture of me with ripped abs astride a unicorn slaying dragons was THAT far from the truth. Sheesh, aren’t we all allowed artistic license with our self-image? Other than the initial nerves from picking her up at the airport I would have to say that the times that were had while she was there were absolutely the best. In four words, she is a gem. She truly is one of those friends that I am glad to call so; there was absolutely no stress to provide constant entertainment, there was no sense of obligation in the guest / host dichotomy, and I have to say that if anyone out there wants to have one of the most stress-free houseguest on the planet point all inquiries to her.
-I don’t see this as a major contributing factor, but the biggest bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin might have assisted. Seriously, this thing was EPIC.
